Refstack is only to test API calls ?

Asked by Malleshi C N on 2015-07-20

Hi Team,

I ve installed refstack to test my Openstack and able to generate the token as per the steps given in

(./refstack-client test -c <Path of the tempest configuration file to use> -vv -- tempest.api.identity.v2.test_token.)

my question is refstack-client is only to test openstack API calls? or else we can check CLI calls also.. if yes how to configure..

is refstack has its own dashboard to display the results? , If Yes how to configure & test the results on Dashboard?

Hi Melleshi,
Yes, currently Refstack only involves testing of API calls. There are 3 major components in Refstack.

1) Refstack client: commend line tool for testing
2) Refstack API server: provides API to upload/retrieve data from Refstack data repository.
3) Refstack UI for data and compliance status viewing.

Please see the about tab in for more information.

After verifying the refstack-client and your tempest.conf file , you can run the full API test suite or DefCore must-pass tests with the following:

To run the entire API test set:
./refstack-client test -c <Path of the tempest configuration file to use> -vv

To run only those tests specified in a DefCore defined test file. For example:
./refstack-client test -c ~/tempest.conf -vv --test-list

Thanks Catherine..

Refstack API server::
API server will be storing the data in mysql DB and i can view that data by logging into mysql. is there any way I can pull the data directly without loggin into mysql?

I need some more information on Refstack UI... does Refstack has its own dashboard to display the test results?
